Ellie Kemper and Tina Fey speak to the press while attending the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt panel during Netflix’s portion of the 2015 Summer TCA Tour on Tuesday (July 28) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Also in attendance were their co-stars Jane Krakowski and Tituss Burgess.
Ellie opened up to reporters about what it was like having Jon Hamm (who guest starred on the Netflix series) as her high school drama teacher.
“He was not ugly,” Ellie said (via People). “He was a wonderful teacher. I was in ninth grade and he taught me the improv section of my theater class, and everyone loved him.”
“When they told us that he would be playing the reverend, it was fantastic. But I was a little scared,” she added. “I think there’s still a teacher-student dynamic, and acting with him was a little bit nerve-racking just because I felt like he was still grading me on some level. But he’s a wonderful man and it was a lot of fun.”
